Misadventures of a minority-elect President 184

Chronicling the misadventures of our minority-elect President’s alternate reality, alternative facts and the miscreants that comprise his administration so you don’t have to:

We begin today’s misadventures of our illegitimate minority-elect president with questions of whether or not his diminished mental capacities allow him to understand what ‘collusion’ means, Trump’s GOP brown shirts prefer party loyalty over policing our dimwitted dip shit – which makes them just as guilty as he is, Trump’s collusion woes from his growing Russia scandal are just getting started, all of our lackluster lame duck president’s problems are everyone else’s fault – never his, questions abound about when – not if – Trump will be impeached, even Trump’s mother is worried about her deviant son and his behavior, how the joke Trump calls his fraudulent tax reform scam would destroy most Americans while enriching Trump and those that own him and much more.

6 Loose Ends in Mueller’s Investigation That Could End Up Shaking Trump’s Presidency article from Alternet. –
https://www.alternet.org/election-2016/six-loose-ends-muellers-investigation-could-have-big-implications

Trump’s collusion woes from his growing Russia scandal are just beginning:

“Despite denials by the White House and dismissive right-wing media coverage, special counsel Robert Mueller’s opening salvo—the indictments and a guilty plea—has stunned Washington for its aggressiveness, legal positioning and comprehensive strategy that suggests the Trump campaign and White House’s problems will only deepen.

“The first big takeaway from Monday morning’s flurry of charging and plea documents with respect to Paul Manafort Jr., Richard Gates III and George Papadopoulos is this: The president of the United States had as his campaign chairman a man who had allegedly served for years as an unregistered foreign agent for a puppet government of Vladimir Putin, a man who was allegedly laundering remarkable sums of money even while running the now-president’s campaign, a man who allegedly lied about all of this to the FBI and the Justice Department,” wrote Susan Hennessey and Benjamin Wittes for LawfareBlog.com.

“The second big takeaway,” they continued, “is even starker: A member of President Trump’s campaign team admits that he was working with people he knew to be tied to the Russian government to ‘arrange a meeting between the campaign and the Russian government officials’ and to obtain ‘dirt’ on Hillary Clinton in the form of thousands of hacked emails—and that he lied about these activities to the FBI. He briefed President Trump on at least some of them.”

By Tuesday morning, we know Manafort and Gates are taking one legal path—fighting the special counsel’s indictment, its accusations, in court, while Papadopoulos already has pleaded guilty to lying to FBI agents, and is most likely cooperating with investigators to reduce his sentence. Mueller’s first moves have been characterized by lawyers as a classic opening salvo in launching “a big case,” which raises a series of questions and loose ends starting with: what else does he know and who else is targeted?…”

‘EVERYONE IS FREAKING OUT’: TRUMP’S WEST WING RACES TO CONTAIN MUELLERL FALLOUT article from Vanity Fair. –
https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2017/10/trump-west-wing-races-to-contain-mueller-fallout

Trump’s illegitimate White House feigns calm but facts tell a different story:

“When Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the truculent White House Press secretary, was asked how Donald Trump had taken the news that three former campaign advisers had been charged in the special counsel’s Russia investigation, her reply was brusque. “He responded the same way the rest of us in the White House have—that is, without a lot of reaction, because it doesn’t have anything to do with us.”

Those who have spoken to sources inside the West Wing, however, paint a different picture: of a president fuming over the indictments and consumed by cable news coverage, oscillating furiously between “media critic, legal analyst, and crisis communications strategist,” as The Washington Post reports.

Although the White House had been anticipating charges in Robert Mueller’s “witch hunt” for months, news that one former adviser, George Papadopoulos, had pleaded guilty, and begun working with the F.B.I., exploded like a bomb. Rising before dawn and gluing himself to his television, Trump at first felt vindicated by the charges against Paul Manafort and Richard Gates, which were seemingly unconnected to Russia. “NO COLLUSION!” he tweeted triumphantly, after he spoke with his lawyers. Others were reportedly relieved that the first batch of indictments did not include Trump’s former national security advisor, Michael Flynn. (Manafort and Gates have pleaded not guilty.)

But the president’s mood darkened after hearing that Papadopoulos had, apparently, turned state’s witness. “The walls are closing in,” one senior Republican in close contact with top staffers told the Post, echoing other sources who described Trump as angry and agitated. “Everyone is freaking out.” The New York Times reported that White House aides were “stunned and alarmed.”…”

The White House Admits That Trump Impeachment Is A Realistic Possibility article from PoliticusUSA. –
http://www.politicususa.com/2017/11/02/white-house-admits-trump-impeachment-realistic-possibility.html

It’s not a question of if Trump get impeached, but when:

“People inside the White House are distancing themselves from Trump and admitting that the impeachment of the President had become a real possibility.

Gabriel Sherman of Vanity Fair reported, “For the first time since the investigation began, the prospect of impeachment is being considered as a realistic outcome and not just a liberal fever dream. According to a source, advisers in the West Wing are on edge and doing whatever they can not to be ensnared. One person close to Dina Powell and Gary Cohn said they’re making sure to leave rooms if the subject of Russia comes up.”

Sherman also reported that the White House sees few good options for stopping Mueller.

Trump is raging, raving, and blaming Jared Kushner for his problems, but there is the only person to blame for this scandal, and that is Donald Trump. It is Trump whose odd behavior, and denial of the hacking and Russian involvement in the election drew the FBI’s attention. It was Trump who fired James Comey, and it is Trump who has relentlessly tried to shut down the Russia investigation…”

Trump is Leading the Most Corrupt Administration in U.S. History, One of First-Class Kleptocrats article from Newsweek on Yahoo! News. –
https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-leading-most-corrupt-administration-135452883.html

Which has been blatantly obvious since he was ‘elected’:

“He’d promised to build the wall. To make America great again. To lock her up. Now, in the last weeks of his campaign for president, Donald J. Trump needed one more stirring slogan. And since he was badly trailing Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, it would have to be a marketing marvel worthy of Mad Men’s Don Draper, one that encapsulated the vague yet compelling promise of his candidacy—its worship of American ideals and its total break from them.

On October 17, 2016, the Trump-Pence campaign released a five-point plan for ethics reform that featured lobbying restrictions that would insulate Trump and his administration from corporate and interests. The plan was called “drain the swamp.”

Trump tried out the phrase that day at a rally in Green Bay, Wisconsin. He used it the next day at a rally in Colorado Springs, Colorado. “We’re going to end the government corruption,” Trump vowed, “and we’re going to drain the swamp in Washington, D.C.” He then recited a litany of accusations regarding Clinton and her use of a private email server, calling her “the most corrupt person to ever run for the presidency.”

“Build the wall” had been the raw opening cry of the Trump campaign. “Make America great again” was its chorus. “Drain the swamp” was its closing number. But while talk of a border wall plainly thrilled Trump, he was apparently never too worked up about the festering bog that was the nation’s capital. He said as much in an October 26 rally in Charlotte, North Carolina, in one of his unsettling bouts of honesty: “I said that about a week ago, and I didn’t like it that much, didn’t sound that great. And the whole world picked it up.… Funny how things like that happen.… So ‘drain the swamp,’ I didn’t like it. Now, I love it, right?”…”

https://www.rawstory.com/2017/11/what-kind-of-son-have-i-created-even-trumps-mom-worried-about-the-future-president/

When our impotent imbecile’s mother is worried about her son’s behavior, you have a major problem:

“President Donald Trump’s bizarre and outlandish behavior has prompted a lot of speculation about his psychological state — and what role his parents played in shaping his peculiar personality.

Trump’s own mother pondered the question herself, according to a new Politico Magazine profile that examines the president’s upbringing and relationship with his parents.

“What kind of son have I created?” wondered Mary Trump in an interview from 1990, when the future president was divorcing his first wife and faced ruinous debt.

Politico interviewed some of Trump’s childhood friends and business associates, as well as some psychologists, to get a sense of the relationship between him and his mother — whom the president rarely mentions…”

Trump Tax Plan Would Deal Long-Term Blow to Working- and Middle-Class Americans article from Truthout. –
http://www.truth-out.org/news/item/42482-trump-tax-plan-would-deal-long-term-blow-to-working-and-middle-class-americans

Yet more reasons Trump’s fraudulent tax reform scam would devastate all but the rich that own Trump and the miscreants leading his administration:

“The tax plan now under consideration by Congress is remarkable for its consistency: a raft of provisions that disproportionately benefit corporations and wealthy Americans and do little for poor, working- and middle-class people.

On the front end, there are straightforward giveaways like the corporate tax rate cut and repeal of the estate tax. On the tail end, there’s the damage that the tax cuts will do when public revenues have plunged and the deficit hawks step in, claiming there’s no choice but to slash federal spending even further. In the middle, there are empty promises to poor, working- and middle- class Americans. The result could be an acceleration in the worsening economic inequality that has been taking shape for decades.

Tax Cuts for Billionaires

In response to a climate of growing economic inequality, in which the wealthiest individuals have left everyone else further and further behind, the Trump tax plan would double down on solidifying wealth at the top. By one estimate from the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP), based on an initial version of the Trump plan, more than two-thirds of the proposed tax cuts would go to the richest 1 percent of Americans. That means people who earn at least $615,800 a year would enjoy an average tax cut of $90,610 each. The average tax cut for the 1 percent is bigger than the amount the vast majority of Americans earn in a year…”
